Clean the deck, sharpen blades, check belts and pulleys, new spark plug, change oil, clean/change filters. Carb usually gets cleaned and adjusted every few years.

I do all the things before I put them away for winter. Then maybe the odd fix up
In the spring. Does not always work that way, but that's what I try and do , so in the spring , put the battery in , start her up and go cuttin. Noel
